Whats the price on these and isn't it like 4 months away? I will most likely wait for a deal on the Deluxe Edition if above $50.

They both are available for sale October 6th. Not sure on the prices but probably 49.99 for standard and 69.99 for the Deluxe. Just a guess. I have no idea but when they first come out they are usually always at least 50.

Deluxe for sure. And a Saitek X52 to go with it. Man, I love flying. I'm planning on getting my private pilots license before I'm 30. I've always wanted to fly.

Oh man, flight sims are so much better on a widescreen monitor too!! Especially my 2407!!

Deluxe for the extra cities and planes. Will be a good two years before we see the next edition so might as well get the whole package.

Too bad they are not carying over some of my favorites from 04, like the Ford TriMotor and the De Havaland Comet. Then again I have only seen 21 of the 24 planes.

For sure, get the X52. It makes it so much more fun. I haven't tried it on a widescreen monitor but I will someday. Oh man, I can't wait for this game.

I have never tried X-plane but from what I have seen and heard it also looks amazing.

theres a free version on their site, its a prety cool game, its extreamly hard to learn though and you really need a joystick for it to be enjoyable, the textures in the game are amazing compared to MSFS though, and the massive enviroment, the box is several dvd's and it only comes with america, if you really want to you can download the whole world! And you can set the weather to be what it would be in real life at that place its pretty cool

edit: they now offer the entire world on 8 dual layer DVD's WOAH!

Holy lord that X-plane looks amazing. When I get a bigger desk next year and a decent joystick I'll definately have to check that out.

Thats a bummer. You could always upgrade and wait for vista. That way, Xp will go down in price, and you can just upgrade to that.
